    Anders Lee or Jake Guentzel? Is Halak a viable keeper?

    Pick one of these 3 for this round of the playoffs - Getzlaf, Forsberg or Oshie. For the Dobbernomics Salary Cap Game Playoffs 2017.

    Atkinson had a high shooting percentage, are you expecting a decline from his total production next season?

    Also, Atkinson or Hoffman?

    Where does Ovi rebound with next season? 60-70 points, 70 to 80 or 80+. How much does the Olympics hurt his value? Would you trade him for Talbot/Stammer in my first league?

    In my playoff elimination pool - I've got Crosby, Malkin, Guentzel and Hornqvist, Gibson, Eaves and Vermette, and McDonagh, Skejh and Krider. Clearly the fate of my team lies in how deep the Pens go.

    I'm currently in the lead with all 10 of my players advancing to the second round.

    Will I win the pool?

    My limited keeper (10) is transitioning into a dynasty this fall. Currently I am keeping 6F, 3D, 1G, with McDavid in the minors as well as some other high end prospects. My question, would it be better to keep a 2nd goalie (Lundquist) rather than a 6th forward (JVR/Radulov/Stone) - assuming I am unable to complete a trade for an upgrade.

    3 questions, all for the league in sig

    1) Would you be comfortable to enter next year with Talbot as your main G? If you were to guess right now, who do you think will be his backup?

    2) As of now, without knowing where they will play next year, would you keep Radulov or Oshie in a points only league?

    3) If I was to put Burns on the block for a top end forward, wich ones would you consider 1 for 1? (I already own Crosby and Kane and McDavid is of course not available) And if I could make a 1 for 2 swap, landing Hedman, what kind of forward would you ask for (replacing Radulov or Oshie as my 6th keeper)?

    Thanks for doing that!

    Mackinnon and Drouin - both were supposed to be superstars, but that might not happen. point projections for next year, plus long term realistic upside.

    Conor Sheary - looks like he might be off the top line now. long term, is he gonna spend most of his time with Crosby, or is it time to sell high?

    Keep 5 - 16 team H2H league (Yahoo). Cats: G, A, +/- (ew), PIM, PPP, SHP, GWG, SOG, Hit, Blk, W, GAA, SV%, SV and SO. Start 2C, 2LW, 2RW, 3D, 1G, 5 Reserve

    M. Murray.

    Guaranteed Keepers are Karlsson and Pasta. Pretty sure I should keep Murray too. So I am slightly torn on the last 2. I have had MacKinnon for 2 seasons now so leaning towards him (he can't continue to be that bad can he?) and I feel I should keep him. So last spot should be Krieder? Lee? Carter (plenty of C's always available)... Who would you keep?

    I hate asking specific questions about my fantasy team rather than ask about certain players so that everyone can benefit but I would love to get your take on my dilemma:

    I need to cut 4 out of the 7 listed below (team in sig., I finished in 3rd, goalies are hard to come by and I can't trade anyone for the time being):

    - Stastny
    - Nyquist
    - Burakovsky*
    - Greiss*
    - Halak*
    - Varlamov
    - Pickard


    I know I will most likely get a bit of insight from the NHL teams closer to my selection date (July 1st) but I would still love to hear what you think ATM. Thanks in advance for doing this!

    * These are the ones I'm leaning towards


    Keeper league 14 teams (H2H, 20 active players keep 16 NHLers, 15 minors)
    Scoring Cats: G-A-PTS-PPG-PPA-(+/-)-PIM-SHP-SOG-FOW-GWG / W-L-SVS-SV%-GAA-SO

    C- Crosby, Pavelski, Toews, Spezza, Dvorak
    W- Benn, Voracek, Forsberg, Okposo, Sheary, Burakovsky, Nyquist, Zacha, Beauvillier
    D- Carlson, Yandle, Provorov
    G- Price, Smith, Hellebuyck, Greiss, Halak

    Minors:
    F: N.Schmaltz, McLeod, Milano, Weal, Hawryluk, Merkley, Senyshyn, Necas, Yamamoto, Heponiemi
    D: Pulock, Montour, Lindell, Juolevi, J. Schmaltz
    G: DiPietro, Montembeault, Martin, Taylor
